plugin Checks external links for connection errors

Last updated on


:!: External requirements: This plugin requires the the PHP curl library.

Install the plugin using the Plugin Manager and the download URL above, which points to latest version of the plugin. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


The plugin checks to see if an external url is accessible. If it is, then it will replace the standard gray external link icon with a green globe. If not, it will replace the gray icon with a red globe. This is in keeping with DokuWiki's use of green for valid internal links and red for broken internal links. This feature does not apply to interwiki links; this may be open to change through an option in a future update. The difference can be seen here: Links with the dokuwiki book icon are interwiki links and have the class interwiki. External links have the class urlextern and get the globe icon.


Please use the forum or the issue tracker referenced in the plugin header.
